U.C. Berkeley Student Paper Justifies Using Violence to Silence Dissent

In the wake of the appalling riots last week, U.C. Berkeley’s student paper the Daily Californian offers a complete lineup of editorials attempting to justify the use of violence to stifle speech with which leftists disagree. One piece reveals that objecting to people being denied their right of free speech by totalitarian thugs makes you guilty of “privilege.” Author Nisa Dang has it in for liberals who hate the people they are supposed to hate, but not enough to beat their heads in with shovels:

First, no protest is nonviolent.

This is because the definition of violence has been twisted beyond recognition to include speech. It also includes even the most passive police presence.

Let’s move on and discuss the atmospheres created during protests, when police are invited to monitor citizens practicing their right to assembly. I don’t care what Breitbart article or liberal bullsh** listicle you’ve read, or what your experiences in white suburbia might have taught you — police are violent agents of the state. They carry weapons, enforce laws that place our communities in danger and use excessive force in order to subdue and “protect.” Often, the people protesting are the same people who are at most risk for being violated by the police. Thus, the presence of police officers in riot gear — armed with less-than-lethal weapons they are more than happy to use on protesters — creates an atmosphere that perpetuates violence on community members.

That is, the police who submissively endured being bombarded with fireworks without responding were inflicting violence on the rioters bombarding them.

As for freedom of speech,

And if Berkeley College Republicans really wanted [speaker Milo Yiannopoulos] – and it really did – well, he came. But for every action, there is a reaction. Just as you all claim that he should be allowed a platform on campus (under the guise of weird misrepresentation of plurality of ideas or whatever), students are allowed to protest him.

People have a right to speak, but goons have a right to use violence to stop them from speaking.

Now to the “privilege” lunacy:

To people with platforms who decide when a protest should and should not be violent: You speak from a place of immense privilege. As I recently wrote in a tirade against this brand of idiocy, asking people to maintain peaceful dialogue with those who legitimately do not think their lives matter is a violent act. Putting #LoveTrumpsHate at the end of a post is a privilege that many of you take advantage of, especially when there are those of us who know that our grandparents and parents survived hate only through the grace of violent action.

The grace of violent action. The toxic garbage leftist professors have been stuffing into this brat’s soft skull is not constructive. Why are taxpayers forced to finance it?

The “grace of violent action.”

    Leftist “protesters” in action…

  2. JackisBack says:

    So this should make the police & national Guard less apprehensive of shooting some of these Marxists in the face after they are assaulted or told to stand down as they beat Trump supporters into comas.

  3. SNuss says:

    Of course, that only applies if you are a Leftist. Let some conservative beat the hell out of someone to shut them up, and the media will make it front-page news.

  5. OldSailor says:

    The conservative doesn’t have to beat the snot out of anyone, just pushing back or yelling is often enough to get the conservative branded a “violent racist bigot *insert favorite privileged type*phobic bully,” we’ve seen it before many times.

  6. Stosh says:

    Well at least a charge of felony rioting should prevent them from voting in the future.

    Normal people walk away from something they don’t like, or refuse to listen to something they don’t want to hear. It really is that simple… for normal folks. Not so for the left. They feel it gives them permission to attack people and destroy other peoples property! On the other hand, if some snowflake feels it’s his right to attack me for no other reason than he’s pissed, then I guess it’s my right to introduce him to the business end of a Louisville Slugger in order to defend myself…

    So I I guess it’s OK when the opponents of the left resort to violence to settle their grievances, correct?
